Nice spot Sherlock.

I think you're on to something here.

Looks like they're doing it in other realms as well:

I wish they would reintroduce the first Monsta from 2013 or so. Board was like a HP flyer epic daily driver. The newer versions have all been refined so much that he tweaked it back to a HPSB that needs a good wave to work.

Great marketing strategy

Loved the Monsta 6

@waxfoot which shop? I thought I saw some sub Xero's in Beachbeat Alex but didn't notice what construction they were in. They have Monster boxes at $200 off fyi.
Also BB - not sure which one, I think it's the one in Caloundra that does Instagram responses.
They have the Sub, but the Sub Xero's haven;t landed yet.

I have a MB in PU, won;t be replacing it any time soon, love the thing.

Yew. Tripping on the rails, they're really pinched and the board feels much thinner than the 2 5/8 would suggest. Feel epic under arm.
I just got back from the shop. Picked up a CJ Nelson Outlier 7'er used.
Noticed on the subxero they are using the biaxial weave same as Muzza Burton does. I like it...nice and strong.
Hid the foam on the boards well.

I demo’d a 5’7 at Camp Shred today and was really underwhelmed. It was a HyFi 2.0 build and despite being about three liters more than my typical shortboard, felt really good under the arm. The guy working the booth said he preferred riding his at a similar
volume increase.

The board paddled worse than I expected, not terrible, but below average for what I’d hope for with that volume (32L). I generally ride 27.5 - 30L.

The waves were fun waist to chest high. I could do everything I wanted to, but it just felt really stiff. I rode FCS MF’s larges which I ride in most of my boards and really like.

It was a board I was really curious about, so I’m glad I got to check it out. Not a dog by any stretch (Air 17X, I briefly owned takes that honor), but I was bored with board after about five waves.

hmm good to know. I was kinda interested in trying this board in that size but couldn't make it to camp shred.
did the hyfi 2.0 feel much different from hyfi?

I’ve owned one HyFi and borrowed another from a friend for a week a few years back, but remember them feeling a little more flexible than the 2.0 I road today. I wasn’t excited enough about the shape to consider trying the 5’5 which is closer to my typical liters, where I may have had a better perspective on the board’s flex.

Did you sarf it as a quad or a thruster? Imo, the board's 100% not a thruster.

Trying this out this weekend... love this thing!

Thruster. I’ll see if I can track down another and give it a go as either a quad or 2+1. My local shop (E.T. Surf) stopped carrying JS. They took on Sharp Eye around the same time, so maybe it was a Mad Max Thunderdome sitch.
